Ramesh Balsekar - The purpose of life

Our phenomenal world is not a collection of entities. It is one total process in which things, including human beings, are not objects but events.

That this entire phenomenal show of the universe has no purpose indicates the obvious futility of seeking a goal in life.

No sooner is a goal conceived than spontaneity is at once destroyed and the self

conscious ego takes over in destructive competition against everything that comes, thus missing all that is worthwhile in life.

It is, indeed, the "purposeful" life which entirely misses out on the purpose of life! The true purposeless vision misses nothing and enjoys everything without inhibition.
